Responsible Gaming

Topgoal provides online gaming to its players to be able to enjoy their gambling. However, for some this activity may cease to be of fun and while some gamble within their means, for others gambling can become a problem as it can turn into an addiction. For this reason, Topgoal has put mechanisms in place so that the player is able to take full control of his gambling before it is too late.


For sportsbetting, limits are in place to

    i. limit on the amount the player may bet
    ii. limit on the amount the player may deposit within a specified period of time
    iii. exclude himself from playing for a definite or indefinite period of time

For all limits set, they will be implemented as soon as they are received by Topgoal. However, for your benefit you will not be allowed to remove any restrictions placed on your account or bets until a minimum period of seven days has elapsed from when you created the limitation.

SportsBetting Rules

These Rules apply to all bets concluded with Topgoal. The player acknowledges that he has read the Rules and that he accepts the Rules as being applicable at the time the bet is placed and accepted.

The player must check the bet slip immediately for correctness and completeness. Later objections cannot be considered.

Additional information about betting events is a voluntary service of Topgoal to its players. All statements made herewith as well as the completeness are explicitly not warranted. Thus the possible absence of such information does not affect the validity of a bet. Furthermore, Topgoal assumes that the punter has informed himself about the events he intends to place a bet on.

Refusal of bets

We reserve the right to refuse any bet that is submitted to us, without giving a reason. On occasions where we are willing to accept a part of a bet, or accept a bet but at different odds or terms, we will always propose a revised bet to the player who can then accept or decline the revised bet.

Cancellation/Alteration of bets

Once a bet has been placed, it cannot be altered or cancelled by the customer after 15 minutes from the confirmation of the bet.

Price changes

All of our prices (odds) are subject to variation at any time. We will accept bets only at the price that is applicable to the selection at the time that the bet is submitted.

Palpable errors

Topgoal reserves the right to amend bets where the price taken by a player for a selection was wrongly displayed by us, or a selection was incorrectly described. Such an error may have occurred due to an error in transmission of prices, or by a human error when inputting price information. In all cases we will be able to demonstrate what the correct price was at the time the bet was made, or that in fact there was no price for that selection.

If a bet is being placed on a palpably wrong price or selection, and we discover the mistake before the start of the event, Topgoal will - whenever possible - offer the player the option to cancel the bet or have the bet settled at the correct price (at the time the bet was made) or the current price - whichever is the greater.

Where Topgoal does not hear from the player all palpable error bets will be made void regardless of the outcome. Similarly, where there is no price for a selection, or we discover the mistake after the start of an event, bets will be made void. In such an event the stake will be re-paid to the player.

Topgoal does not assume any liability for misprints, human failure or obvious errors, leading to evident miscalculations. In such cases Topgoal is entitled to effect corrections.

Changes regarding events

If an event is put forward or it takes place at a different time than scheduled in the events published, only bets which have been accepted until this moment are valid.

If a cancelled or annulled event is restarted or continued until the end of the day of the following day (which shall be calculated on the basis of the original venue, the local time of the original venue and the original start time of the betting event), the bet shall be valid for the restarted event. In all other cases the odds for the cancelled or annulled event are set at 1.0.

The basic principle “play or pay” applies to all bets, which means that the bet is lost if a starter on which the bet is placed, regardless of the reasons, does not participate and the event takes place.

Maximum payouts

The maximum payout (inclusive of stake) on any one bet is € 12,500.

Minimum stakes

The usual minimum stake for any single stake bet is € 1.
The usual minimum unit stake for any combination bet is € 0.10.
These minimum stakes may change for different betting opportunities.

There is no maximum stake for a bet. All bets are subject to the maximum payout relating to that betting opportunity. The system will typically identify bets placed where the maximum payout amount is exceeded and the punter will be informed accordingly. Should a bet, where the winnings exceed the maximum payout, be erroneously accepted Topgoal reserves the right to only payout the maximum payout amount.

Late bets

Bets placed unintentionally or otherwise after the start of an event (excepting cases where we are specifically offering ‘in running’ betting) are invalid. The time displayed on the betting slip shall be deemed as the time of acceptance of the bet. For the avoidance of doubt, the time displayed on the betting slip corresponds to the time on our servers. If the time of the acceptance is later than the effective start of the event the bet is deemed to be late and invalid.

All times displayed are for information purposes only, and we adhere to official start times (or ‘off’ times) of events and races.

While we try to always remove the opportunity to bet on an event once it has started, should an event remain ‘open’ this is not in itself an indication that we are willing to take bets on the event. We reserve the right to refer back to start or ‘off’ times and cancel late bets.

If a bet is late or not placed according to these Rules, the bet will be invalid, the odds are set at 1.0 and the stake will be paid back. In respect of combination or a system bets, the odds for events concluded after the actual start or betted on, are set at 1.0 and in the case of a single bets paid back. All other events within the combination or system bet, which has been placed before the start of the respective game, shall remain in place and shall be evaluated after the end of all events of the betting slip accordingly to the denoted quotes.


Winner of an event shall be that who is declared as the winner by the respective jury at 24:00 (local time of the venue) on the day of the event. This does also apply to long-term bets. All changes to the ranking list after this time, regardless of the reason/s, do not affect the payout.

In general, the decisions made by the referee, the umpire or the jury respectively at the time of the event or at the end of the event are authoritative. All subsequent decisions at the “green table” or because of “other byelaws or proceedings” do not influence the outcome of the event for betting purposes.
If more than one participant is declared as the winner within the same event (“Dead Heat”), the odds will be split according to the number of winners of the event.

Ball games

In respect of football games the result after 90 minutes (regular full time) and in respect of ice hockey games the result after 60 minutes (regular full time) is authoritative. Any extra time or penalty shoot-outs do not influence the payout of winnings. Offered bets, which have to be labelled respectively (e.g. American sports with overtime), are excepted from this provision.

American sports

In respect of American sports (NFL, NBA, MLB and college sport), the result after a possible extra time (overtime) is authoritative for the evaluation of the bet. In respect of the NHL (three-way with tip X for a draw) the result after 60 minutes (regular full time) is decisive.

If there is no winner because of a “point-spreads” (e.g. the team with - 6 points wins with exactly 6 points ahead), the odds for the bet will be set at 1.0.

Bets on baseball games (MLB) will be valuated as cancelled and the stake will be paid back if the game does not take place as originally scheduled or does not start at least within 12 hours after the original start time.

If an event is abandoned and is officially valuated nevertheless, this result will be authoritative for the calculation of the winnings.

If events of American sports (NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB as well as college sports) are abandoned before the official full time is up, the events are deemed to be played if:
NBA: after at least 43 minutes of the playing time
WNBA and college basketball: after at least 35 minutes of the playing time
NFL and college football: after at least 55 minutes of the playing time
MLB: after at least 5 innings are played or after 4, 5 innings are played respectively, if the home team is leading. The result after the last complete inning is always authoritative, unless the home team equalizes or gets in the lead during the second half of an inning. In such a case the result at the time of abort of the game applies.


If a tennis game is cancelled before at least one ball has been served, the odds are deemed to be set at 1.0.

If a game ends early because a player drops out because of inability to continue to play or disqualification, all single bets will be invalid and the stakes will be re-paid (odds 1.0). Affected combination bets will be re-calculated without this part of the bet, for which the odds are deemed to be 1.0!

If a game is postponed, interrupted and newly scheduled, the bets within the scope of the tournament persists until the game is played. If a game is not played within a tournament (e.g. a single exhibition game), the game will be declared as invalid (odds 1.0) in the event the game is not continued and finished within 72 hours. If a match is not played, all single bets will be invalid and the stakes will be re-paid (odds 1.0)! Concerned combination bets will be re-calculated without taking the invalid part into consideration (odds 1.0 for this part of the bet).

Formula 1

Grand Prix bets on the winner: The result at the time of the award ceremony applies to a Grand Prix bet on the winner. Subsequent disqualifications or changes of the ranking do not effect the result of the bet. If a driver does not take part in the race, the bet is treated as lost. If the event does not take place, the odds for bets on the winner will be set at 1.0 (cancelled).

Head to Head

In respect of Head to Head bets both starters have to take part in the event. If one or both starters do not take part in the betting event, the bet is treated as cancelled. In respect of head to head bets on Formula One Grand Prix races, the driver with the better ranking at the end of a race is treated as the winner of the event. If both drivers drop out of the race before the finish, the driver who completed more rounds is treated as the winner. If both drivers drop out within the same round, the driver with the better ranking at the last completed round is treated as the winner.

Price or event rigging

Where there is evidence of price rigging, we reserve the right to settle bets at starting price, or to make bets void. Where there is evidence of corruption in any event we reserve the right to make bets on that event void.

The punter declares by concluding the bet that he does not have any knowledge about manipulations or agreements respectively concerning the bet or that he already knows the result of the event on which he has placed a bet.


Bets may only be placed on events on display in the programme at the price indicated. Not all events are available for single bets. The programme will clearly indicate the events available for single bets.

If the betting event does not take place as indicated in the list of events, the bet shall be invalid and the stakes will be paid back.

If a betting event is listed wrongly in the betting program by mistake (e.g. wrong starting number) or if there are obvious errors in the determination of the winning odds due to computer errors there is no entitlement to the bet contract. Bets that have been accepted wrongly are cancelled or accepted at the corrected quotas.

In principle, Top Goal (Malta) Ltd. reserves the right to withdraw from the betting program any announced betting events without giving reasons in full or in parts after extraordinary circumstances have become known or to make changes to the quota in the time after the generation of the betting program up to the time of placing the bets. The entitlement to winnings expires 60 days after the termination of the event.
